Here in Tioman, we have around 20 dive sites to visit during your stay. These sites are great for beginners, through to professional photographers and there is something for everyone.
From turtles swimming effortlessly by and sharks cruising past, to the tiniest of nudibranchs hiding amongst the soft coral.
The topography here in Tioman is spectacular, with large granite boulders making up many of the dive sites. These boulders create cracks and crevices for animals to live and hide, and some are large enough for divers to swim through!
All of our sites are within 20-minutes by speedboat, away from our dive centre.
TDC’s Dives depart daily at
- 7:30pm (Night dives are based on 3 divers minimum, and based on the conditions and other logistical issues. Please ask us if you are interested)
We ask our divers to come to the dive shop 30-minutes before the departure time, in order to arrange equipment and paperwork before the boat leaves.
Please bring with you –
- Your Dive Certification card
- Your Log Book (if you have one – you can also buy one at TDC)
- A towel
- Your swimsuit
We often return to the dive centre in between each dive for a quick cup of tea, however for our “Outer islands” dive sites, we conduct these as 2-dive trips, departing at 9:30am, completing 2 dives, and returning by around 1:30pm.
Dive sites are generally decided the previous day, based on the number of divers, diver qualification levels and conditions. If you have any special requests, do let us know and we will try our best to accommodate you.
Please bring payment in cash (MYR), as we do not accept cards, and the ATM in Tekek Village is not very reliable.
